‘Bargain Hunt’ Host Tim Wonnacott To Leave Show Following Bullying Allegations | TV News
Following a suspension from the show over an alleged row with producers, Tim Wonnocott has left Bargain Hunt for good. The eccentric presenter has hosted the daytime BBC television show for 12 years, but has left on a sour note, with claims of ‘bullying‘ being thrown his way.
Wonnocott, who replaced David Dickinson on the show when he left for ITV in 2003, stated, “I am pleased to have been part of Bargain Hunt for so many years and have thoroughly enjoyed every one of my roughly 1,200 programmes hunting out bargains with the contestants“. A statement from the BBC confirming his departure read, “We would like to thank Tim Wonnacott for his dedication to Bargain Hunt over the last 12 years and for the great expertise that he has brought to the show in that time“.
They also revealed that whilst Wonnocott will continue to voice Antiques Road Trip, Bargain Hunt will “be moving in a new direction“. Instead of recruiting a particular new host the show will be “utilising a team of experts who present a number of shows each“.
